Noelle — Nashville, USA
One of Nashville’s first ever luxury hotels, Noel Place, which was built in 1929, has been remade into Noelle, a thoughtfully designed property that’s poised to become a favourite with both visitors and locals alike.
Located on Nashville’s historic Printers Alley and brimming with preserved art deco details, Noelle is housed in an original 13-floor building that was brought back to life by a team of local creatives including Feltus Hawkins Design, Dryden Architecture and Design and branding experts Peck and Company.
Boasting restored terrazzo floors, original brass fixtures and pink Tennesse granite walls, the elegant hotel retains the architectural grandeur of an age past, while seamlessly incorporating all the fashionable notions of contemporary hotel stays as well.
Whether it’s Makeready Libations & Liberation, the in-house restaurant which serves up hearty American tavern fare, its coffee shop Drug Store Coffee by hometown heroes Barista Parlor, its own boutique Keep Shop that brings together local and national designers, or the working print shop Little Prints – Noelle unites some of the best local purveyors that Nashville has to offer.
Upstairs, 224 rooms, including four suites on the 12th floor, are stylishly furnished with Scandi-inspired wood furniture, brass hardware accents and geometric art deco motifs carved into the wooden ceilings above. Owned by Rockbridge and operated by Makeready, this bastion of local heritage and culture is simply a rare find.
